How the score is calculated at CER?
Step1: points system
CER evaluates various aspects of project safety according to a rating system and scores performance based on a minimum score of 0 and a maximum of 10.
Step2: Scoring weights
Multiply the result received by step1 with the scoring system, and the specific weights are as follows.
Step3: Score calculation
Convert the sum of scored points to the rating.
CER certification is given to crypto exchanges that have been assessed by specialists according to 3 main criteria: penetration test, proof of funds, and bug bounty.
Penetration Test: Penetration testing or Pentest is an authorized imitation of external attacks on information systems and applications (desktop, web, and mobile) of the company with the purpose to find vulnerabilities and analyze the level of technical security. The result is a multilayered report containing an analysis of the actual security of the business against external attacks and practical recommendations to limit threats and eliminate vulnerabilities.
Proof of funds: A crypto exchange gets a tick if the balance on hot and cold wallets is >$1M in ETH and BTC.
Bug bounty: A self-hosted bug bounty program may be evaluated as third-party managed if the platform provides a review by a reputable third-party auditor.
